As an active researcher throughout my medical education and training, I have investigated and published over 40 medical articles and presented original research at national and international spine conferences. Among the many topics are quality and value in the changing healthcare arena, improved patient outcomes while managing risk factors for complications, short-term complication differences between spinal and general anesthesia for knee arthroplasty and rare tumors of the sacrum. This ongoing research, together with being a strong advocate for my patients to become more informed consumers, both contribute to providing better care for my patients. My overall mission is to relieve pain and restore activity using the least invasive techniques.
I work to repair any problem of the adult cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine.
